Music is at its core a bunch of sounds with no inherent meaning to them. However, as we invest our hopes and dreams, sadness and despairs, it becomes a reflection of ourselves. Mere sounds are transformed into a well-polished mirror. At peak form, music becomes a divine encounter with ourselves. What we do after seeing ourselves is up to us.
What’s the difference between wanting to do something and doing something? Between wanting to be something and being something? Wanting to write music merely requires a desire. Writing music requires action--you have to sit at a computer or table and input or write notes. Wanting is internal potential energy, while doing is external kinetic energy. If you want to be a musician or a founder, you have to transfer the wanting energy into an action in the real world. Wanting is a thought. Doing and being is a reaching out. Stop wanting and lift your arm.
